So you think you can drive?
We were at the orthopedic this morning and he is so pleased with the progress and the knee looks good. Sed rate is dropping ( normal is 15 and we was over 70 at one point) It is 32 now. This test indicated inflammation or infection. They are sure there is no infection in the knee but the elevation is due to the assult that his lung took. So plan one more recheck in a month and just get on with life.
What a difference a month can make as he was still in ICU a month ago. We are most thankful that things have turned out as they have. He is one lucky duck!
I see a specialist about the lypoma (egg size fatty tumor) in my arm next week. (170 miles from home) Haven't said much about it as it has seemed minor compared to other problems. The reason I see the specialist is that it is located deep under my deltoid muscle and is the source of the pain I have had in that arm. I kept telling the Dr. that it was in my arm just below my shoulder. I do have a minor rotator cuff tear that he thinks I can heal with physical therapy, but have not wanted to start that till I have this other "thing" taken care of. So there is our health updates. Hope I can get back to writing silly stuff soon. This is getting to be a bore!
